, erin, had said to reporters that she believed her son, the older son, tamerlan tsarnaev had been in her words persecuted by the fbi over the past few years. and it's interesting now that we're learning from the fbi in a formal statement that they did question the now deceased 26-year-old a couple years ago. >> yes, that will be an avenue for much questioning from this point on. susan candiotti, as you know, is in watertown. susan, what are you seeing right now? >> well, at the moment just a little while ago a few moments ago, this city bus pulled up and about -- maybe ten or so police officers got off the bus. now you can see them walking by it, getting back on. just a bit in front of it you can see those lights flashing. that is an ambulance that pulled up about 10, 15 minutes ago. and it's been sitting there ever since. in the meantime, we've seen a helicopter go by. but you see a number of police officers sort of in a stand by mode. i think that's the best way to describe it. i don't see any guns drawn in this direction. yes, we're still seeing an occasional squad car go by or unmark
